Protecting Your Future with a Prenup

A prenuptial agreement is a contract made between a couple before they enter into marriage. This legally binding document outlines the financial and property-related terms that will apply in the event of a divorce. It is a proactive measure to address potential issues, providing clarity and structure to the financial aspects of a marriage.

This contract is crucial, as it can effectively resolve specific issues during divorce proceedings. These resolutions include determining spousal support and the fair and equitable division of debts and assets. By establishing terms beforehand, couples can avoid substantial conflicts and lengthy legal battles, fostering a more amicable separation process.

An attorney's insights are invaluable when considering a prenuptial agreement in Ohio. A lawyer can assist in meeting legal requirements and guiding clients through the intricacies of state laws. They can be crucial in helping clients understand their rights and obligations, facilitating fairness within the contractual arrangement.

At Spitzer Law Offices, we recognize each client’s unique situation. Our approach involves thoroughly reviewing our client’s circumstances, enabling us to provide personalized legal guidance.

The Importance of Prenuptial Agreements for Every Couple

Contrary to popular belief, prenuptial agreements are not exclusive to wealthy couples. They are a valuable tool for individuals with property they wish to protect, regardless of their financial standing. Whether a family business, real estate, or even personal savings, a prenuptial agreement provides a legal framework to safeguard these assets.

Certainty Matters in a Divorce

The significance of a prenuptial agreement lies in the certainty it offers during a divorce. Rather than relying on state laws and court decisions to dictate the division of assets and spousal support, couples can proactively decide these matters themselves. 

By clearly outlining the terms beforehand, the couple takes control of their personal matters, facilitating a more predictable and less contentious divorce process. This proactive approach empowers couples to navigate the complexities of divorce with a pre-established understanding, fostering a smoother separation.

Benefits of Prenups

A prenuptial agreement is not just a document. It is a practical tool that can protect both parties’ interests and assets in a marriage.

Comprehensive Asset Protection

Prenuptial agreements are pivotal in safeguarding the financial interests of both parties. By delineating clear terms on property ownership and debts, couples establish a roadmap for asset protection. A prenuptial agreement can significantly minimize potential conflicts in the event of a divorce.

Clarity in Financial Responsibilities

Beyond asset protection, prenuptial agreements clarify the financial responsibilities upon divorce. These agreements outline specifics on spousal support, addressing critical questions such as who pays or receives support, the determined amount, and the duration of support.

Mitigating Disputes

One of the primary benefits of a prenuptial agreement is the mitigation of potential disputes in the unfortunate event of a divorce. Couples create a foundation for a more amicable separation by proactively addressing key financial and property-related matters. The predetermined terms act as a guide, reducing ambiguity and fostering a smoother resolution process. This proactive approach protects each party's interests and promotes a more harmonious transition during challenging times.

Critical Components of a Valid Prenuptial Agreement

Under Ohio Revised Code 3103.061, a valid and enforceable prenuptial agreement is essential for overcoming state laws and court decisions in divorce-related matters. 

The key components of a prenup include the following:

  • Written: The agreement must be in writing and signed by both parties.
  • Mutual consent: The parties must enter the contract voluntarily, without force, fraud, or coercion.
  • Full disclosure: Both parties must fully disclose the value and extent of their respective properties.
  • Non-encouragement of divorce or profit: Ohio law mandates that a prenuptial agreement should not encourage divorce or be aimed at making a profit from the dissolution of the marriage.
